A Letter from Bob & Amy

Thank you for taking the time to read about us. We are ready to grow our family through the blessing of adoption! Your child will receive unconditional love and support throughout their life and we would love the opportunity to speak with you and open our hearts and home to him or her. If you are comfortable, we would love to share letters, pictures and visits with you.

About Us

We met when Bob owned a restaurant across the street from where Amy went to college. We felt an instant spark and got married on the 4th of July! We’ve now been married for 5 happy years.

Going through infertility together, we feel that adoption is the perfect way to expand our family. We love to be outside in nature, take our dog for walks, watch movies on the couch, travel across America, and try out new restaurants and different cuisines. Working together in the restaurant business has been a wonderful blessing and we cherish each moment we spend together. We are so excited to share our adventures with more children!

About Bob

Bob is really loving and generous. Everyone loves spending time with him, he is always ready to help others in need. He is very positive and inspires me to be a better person every day. Bob loves playing the drums with his friends, cooking huge meals for the whole family, finding great deals on equipment for our restaurant, and reading about economics and finance. He puts his whole heart into his career of being restaurant owner. Bob opened his first restaurant over 24 years ago and it has grown into a full service establishment with a variety of different foods. I know that he will be a wonderful and encouraging father to your child and is very excited to share his passions with them.

About Amy

Amy is kind, strong willed, and supportive of me in everything. She has taken my two children into her arms and has been a wonderful role model to them. Amy enjoys putting together puzzles, spending time with friends and family, visiting our local farmers markets to pick up fresh fruits and veggies, and reading up on the latest news. She is our restaurant’s marketer and personnel, as well as our residential unit property manager. She is looking forward to having more children in our home to share her love with!

Our Home in Illinois

We live in a wonderful community that is perfect for families. Our 4 bedroom home is at the end of a court, so there is plenty of space to ride bikes, play with chalk, and have fun with the neighborhood kids. Our house has a big kitchen for making meals together! In the basement, we have a foosball and nerf gun area. Plus the backyard has a trampoline and our grill next to our patio table because we love to eat outside.

There are amazing schools and lots of sports programs in town. We are also 2 hours away from 2 major cities, so lots of opportunities to explore new restaurants, festivals, and museums.

Our Family

Bob has two children, Amira, who is 16, and Adam, who is 12. Amira is strong willed and organized. Adam has a generous heart and is always on the move. They are both very active and love spending time together as a family. They can’t wait to teach hide and seek and they will be great babysitters!

We are very close to our families and they are all very supportive of our adoption journey. Amy has a large family with lots of cousins and we visit them in Chicago a couple times a year. Our family traditions include road trips every summer with Bob’s brother and his family, shopping for gifts for the Boys &amp; Girls Club during Christmas time, and eating big breakfasts on Saturday mornings. All of these traditions we would love to continue with your child.

Our Promise to You

We promise to raise your child with unconditional love. We will support them through everything they do no matter what. Your child will be provided with the best education and we will help them achieve their dreams and goals. We will raise your child to learn about Jesus’ love and will attend church regularly, just like we are doing with Amira and Adam. We will let him or her know their adoption story and talk about you with positivity and love.

If you are comfortable, we would like to share letters, photos and visits. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1-800-923-6784.

Very thoughtfully, Bob and Amy
